Each month, Spill! True Stories of Queer Sex, Desire and Romance brings together storytellers, comedians, sex educators and others to share true tales from their own experiences of queer sex, desire and romance. With stories as diverse as the people telling them, Spill! opens doors to bedrooms, back seats and dungeons to tell what your mama left out about the birds, bees and in-betweens.
Join us this month as our ever-studious storytellers tell tales of being schooled:
Hosted by Jefferson (Bare!, One Life Take Two)
Kevin Allison (The State, Risk!)
Heidi Galore (Storyteller)
Kevin Quigley (ImprovBoston, Bleed Out)
Mindy Raf (Symptoms of My Insanity)
. . . and you! You’ve been schooled or had to rap someone’s knuckles. Put your name in the hat for a chance to spill all on the Spill! stage.
